"Performance-driven progressive" Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) may require some help with his polling performance in a key presidential primary state.

The Maryland governor pulled down zero percent of New Hampshire Democrats in a new poll released by New England College, WMUR reports:

Clinton has a whopping 65 percent support among New Hampshire Democrats in a poll released by New England College on Tuesday. Vice President Joe Biden was well behind her at 10 percent. He was followed by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 5 percent, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo at 4 percent, and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick at 3 percent. Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley was at zero percent. Some 13 percent were unsure and the poll's margin of error among the Democrats was 5.5 percent.

No one dominates the early going on the Republican side. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio led the pack with 17 percent, a tick above former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush who had 16 percent support. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who is visiting New Hampshire next week, was at 15 percent. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan had 12 percent each. The Republican margin of error was 5.3 percent, meaning that all candidates were statistically tied.

O'Malley has made a liberal splash in recent months, preparing to sign into law new gun control laws, overseeing the legalization of same-sex marriage, and embracing the implementation of Obamacare in Maryland.
